WW1: Service, Spirit and sacrifice

On April the 11th, communities from in and around the National Park came together for the ‘WW1 Commemorative Showcase’; a collaborative Park-wide Heritage presentation of community service, spirit and sacrifice. The joint showcase which is part of an ongoing project, has been an opportunity for a wide range of community heritage groups and societies to display their research; to come together to remember those involved in the Great War and to look at each communities wartime experience and it’s lasting legacy. These poignant discoveries, gleaning what places were like, how communities coped with the abscences and dealt with the shortages have been archived into a full colour commemorative booklet telling some of the┬ástories of the sacrifices made and the people that lived in this beautiful but challenging rural landscape.
